    Indexing mobile site


    I have a mobile site and for some reason it's not indexing 400 pages. I've submitted a sitemap with 1000 and only about 600 managed to be indexed.

    Is there something special that I have to do to get these pages indexed?

    Does the doctype effect the googlebot crawling rate?

    Thank you in advance! I really appreciate for taking your time to read my post.

    The key to getting all of your pages indexed is:

    1. Good internal link structure
    2. Unique pages (meta tags, content, etc.)
    3. Sitemap

    If you have the above it is only a matter of time before ALL of your pages get indexed in Google.

    The thing is I'm using 301 redirects and then it's passed to NATs. NATs then returns the user to the page. I guess there's something wierd of what NATs is probably on their end.

    Do you know if there anything special specifically to the html?

    NAT on the clients side will not effect anything.

    If a client can make a request to a server and the server returns an HTML page then its OK.

    If you have 301s then this could well be limiting the indexing up take on the URLs they go too.

    Is there any reason you have these 301s in place?

    301s can take a while (6 months or so) before the new URLs show up in the index.

    Other than that govikes is correct apart from the Meta tags effecting indexing - they have no effect on indexing or ranking.

    You might want to try deep linking, having more diverse categories linked to and bread crumb navigation.

    Thank you so much for your time.

    I'm 301 redirecting because of affiliate tracking however cause googlebot doesnt get redirected, I'm not sure what the problem is.

    What do you mean by deep linking?
